It is important that you start a little inside the stamped outline as the colour may bleed a little outside the lines if you are too close and the paper becomes saturated.
Below is a photo of the back of the card stock after it has been coloured with the alcohol Blends. This is what is supposed to happen so don't worry, but do always work on an additional front for your card, not directly onto the card front.

BLENDS are a very useful investment and one of the benefits is that colours you use frequently can easily be replaced as you can buy each colour individually.
I haven't mentioned the Colour Lifter - a handy pen that helps remove little slips and takes colour away to create gorgeous highlights. I didn't use it this time, but keep an eye open on some of the other posts to see how it works.
